another surprise from the vet

This just came unexpectedly in the mail today from the vet. Bird's ceramic paw print. Once again, I had no idea they were going to do this. My sweet Bird, I miss you.

Carla, one of Bird's friends, ordered and sent me this beautiful memento to Bird. I've put it in the garden in front of my house, a place that Bird loved to sun herself and dig her big holes.

Thank you, Carla, for your loving generosity.

bird's paw

I received a condolence card in the mail yesterday signed by my vet, Dr. Katheryn Hinkle, and all of her staff at the Animal Hospital of Cotati. On the front of the card was Bird's paw print. I had no idea this was coming and was blindsided by it. One look at the paw and my grief exploded. But having Bird's paw print is a treasure for me. 

Here's my paw print that
the vet sent to my Lady.

Just in case you didn't see this - Colleen Powell made a very beautiful and loving video tribute to Bird. Here's the link. Thank you, Colleen.

i'm Home now

It turned out be an early departure this morning. It was time. I flew Home in the arms of my Lady and my OM.  Thank you for giving me my beautiful life. 

 Here I am, just before I flew Home this morning.
Thank you, everyone, for your outpouring of love.

Because I was love.

Here's my Fetching Tags tag. 
Scratch my butt was one 
of my favorite things. 

Here's my beautiful Paco Collar

til the wheels fall off, redux

I was reading all your comments and I realized that Blogger tricked me. I had written some other important things, that I don't see now. So, I'm back. One of the important things Blogger swallowed was my flight time.

It is tomorrow, Thursday at 4pm, California time.

And until that very moment, I'll keep living til the wheels fall off. Tonight me and my Lady had cheezburgers, fries and a vanilla shake at In N Out Burger. We stopped there and did the same thing the day she came and got me at the Bad Rap Barn. Yes, it was very delicious.

Here I am slurping up my
vanilla shake.

And just because....

Here I am, asking,
'Are you coming?'
